My HG brush - if I were to be left with just one brush for the rest of my makeup life I would without a moment's hesitation choose this one.And to think I only bought itbecause I couldn't get my hands on the MAC 226 and this seemed similar enough.This is hands down my favourite brush, not just my favourite crease brush but actually my favourite eye brush ever! I am a complete brush whore and have tried more than my fair share of crease brushes in my makeup life and no other brush even comes close to this one. It has the perfect shape, the softest natural bristles I have ever encountered (BTW it never sheds!not even one hair!) and has exactly the right density to where it holds it shape when working with it yet because it is so insanely soft it never ever scratches your eye no matter how much pressure you use and I use a lot of pressure. Prior, to purchasing this brush I was always afraid of scratching my clients' eyes when doing crease work since I am rather heavy handed with my brushes but with this I just don't have to pay any attention to how hard I push on the eyelid. It is a truly sublime brush. I said I would repurchase it but I don't see myself ever doing it since I can't imagine ever having to - it's such a high-quality brush. It's my most often used brush and I wash it all the time and it looks brand new after years of using it. BTW this works fantastic as a eye corner brush as well.

P.S. We don't have Laura Mercier cosmetics in Poland so I bought all my LM brushes on strawberrynet.com - they charge an extra 5$ for LM brushes but you don't pay for shipping so all in all you pay US retail. Definetely worth the $35 I paid for it. Hope this helps if your pondering purchasing it!
Amazing brush, so glad I bought, pricey but worth it, the bristles are so soft on skin.
Wow. This is a very very great brush. It great for crease work. It is so soft and it is extremely well for doing crease an outer V. The other crease brush I own is Smashbox No. 15 and the LM is superior.
I was in the market for a crease brush and I had read good reviews on Laura Mercier crease brush so I decided to give it a shot. The brush is very soft and small enough to fit in the crease. This brush really assisted me in creating the perfect smoky eye using my Kat Von D Beethoven palette. I don't know how I lasted this long without this brush. I could tell the difference in the overall apperance of my eye makeup using this brush in the outer v and crease of my eye. This brush really helped me blend the eyeshadow really well. I would definitely purchase this brush again.
This is the best eyeshadow brush I've ever used, especially when matched with LM Eyeshadow compact. It picks up the right amount of colour and easy to use. For someone lazy like me it's perfect.
i was supposed to get nars small dome brush but the SA suggested this one. so, i gave it a try. it works pretty well with my nars eyeshadows. i really hate applying eyeshadows but after purchasing this, i always look forward in doing my everyday eye make up. this is my HG eye brush and i dont need any brush, just this one and my eye make up is perfect! its expensive but worth it!
I love this brush! It gives such a nice even eyeshadow application, doesnt shed, and is so soft on your eyelids. I hate synthetic brushes that poke the sensitive skin around my eyes but this brush is nothing like that. It holds shadow well and works well for blending. A serious must have for your make up collection. Its worth the high price. It will hold up well and you will get a lot of use out of it for the money.
Very soft bruch that works quite effectively. Blending of eye make up becomes child's play. Can's go wrong using this bruch. Highly recommended.
I LOVE this brush!!!!! It's perfect for using on my crease. And it's soft so it doesn't scratch or poke my eyes. And it pickes up just the right amount of powder. Just absolutely perfect. I want another one!!
I am very happy with this brush, my only complaint is that it gets a little deformed for a few weeks when I wash it. It deposits just the right amount of color and doesn't scratch my eyes (a problem I have had with other brushes from other brands). I use it more than in just the crease, I put Laura Mercier's Vanilla Nuts over all my eye except for the brow with this brush. If you have sensitive or dry skin around your eye and don't like using brushes because they scratch, give this brush a try. I just wish she made a travel size (maybe she does now).
Also this is one of the only brushes I have ever used that has not lost A. Single. Bristle.
